The boys, splendid in their young courage and 
unselfishness, go out to war. And what of the 
girls? It is hard to be a girl these years. But 
you are helping in a thousand ways. You are 
looking for nothing so eagerly as for chances to 

Is this one? 

Eight years ago this October died a Wellesley 
teacher of English literature, Professor Sophie 
Jewett, one of the loveliest presences that ever 
gladdened our halls and campus, one of the most 
sure and sensitive interpreters of poetry that ever 
taught in our class-rooms, herself a poet of rare 
quality. She had great love, — for her students 
and other friends, for nature and art and all 
beauty, for Italy. She had great tenderness, a 
pity that responded to all suffering with deeds of 

The newspapers are full of the tremendous 
Italian offensive. 

It means, among other things, a multitude of 
wounded, and the supply of ambulances is griev- 
ously insufficient. The American poets have 
sprung to the rescue, appealing for funds so ur- 
gently, cabling over the money and buying the 
ambulances so speedily, that there is a good prospect 
of having at least fifty American ambulances on 
the Italian front early in October. Some of 
these are to bear the names of poets. Shall not 
one bear the name, precious in Wellesley memory, 
of Sophie Jewett? 

Two thousand dollars buys an ambulance and 
keeps it in commission for one year. There is a 
box in the college office for contributions. In case 
this should overflow, there is another in the Eng- 
lish Literature office. Who will help?

The Annual Christian Association Reception 
was held in the Barn on Saturday evening, Sep- 
tember 22. President Pendleton, Dr. Snow, Anna 
Paton, Katherine Timberman, and Marie Henze 
received the guests. Anna Paton formally intro- 
duced the Christian Association to the class of 
1921, and urged each member to share the ad- 
vantages and opportunities of the Association, 
and to give to it what it most needs — earnest, 
loyal support. President Pendleton, the next 
speaker, reminded us that the Christian Associa- 
tion represents better than anything else in col- 
lege, the ideals for which Wellesley stands, and 
she also emphasized the need for the co-operation 
of all in its splendid work. Katherine Timber- 
man, President of Student Government, and 
Marie Henze, President of Athletic Association, 
both members of the "Triple Alliance," welcomed 
1921 and again urged their co-operation. Anna 
Paton then read greetings from Patty Westwood, 
Dorothy Mills, Marian Sawyer, Edith Chandler, 
and Mary Eliza Clark.

To assist 1921 in getting acquainted with itself 
and with other members of the College, the Chris- 
tian Association held a series of Teas on Wednes-» 
day, Thursday and Friday afternoons in Rhod- 
odendron Hollow. Rain necessitated holding the 
Tea in the Barn on Thursday, but on the other two 
days there was dancing on the green, where punch 
and wafers were served. The teas were unusually 
well attended and proved most successful 


A small volume of Italian Sketches by Sophie 
Jewett has been privately printed, and is to be 
sold for the "Sophie Jewett Ambulance," one of 
the "American Poets' Ambulances in Italy." 
Many thanks are due to the printer, Mr. F. H. 
Buckley of the Suburban Press, Natick, that the 
book is ready for the opening of college; n<? 
soldier on the Italian front can have carried into 
the campaign more of the spirit of gallant ad- 
venture than has he in printing, binding, and de- 
livering the book into our hands in a week and a

The ceremony of flag raising will be held at East 
Lodge every morning at 8:00 A. M. The lowering 
of the flag will take place at 5:00 P. M. Let us try 
to have a large and patriotic attendance; surely it 
is worth our effort. 

Student Government and all it should mean to 
Wellesley and its students was brought before the 
Freshmen as a class at a meeting in Billings Hall, 
Tuesday night, September 18th. President Pendle- 
ton spoke first of the responsibilities of being citi- 
zens in such a community as Wellesley, emphasiz- 
ing particularly those opportunities given us here 
which we can pay for not financially, but only by 
living up to the ideals of those who made Welles- 
ley possible. 

Katherine Timberman then showed how Student 
Government, as an organization, aimed to further 
the interests of this community and how we, as 
members, should observe the Student Government 
rules in the spirit of good citizenship, sacrificing 
our smaller liberty, if need be, to that of the Com- 


The college library will be glad to accept and 
forward to the distributing station books for the 
camp and hospital libraries being established here 
and abroad. Students and members of the faculty 
who have books which they are willing to donate 
for this purpose are urged to bring them to the 
library. Books of fiction and drama will be 
wanted most, sea stories, detective stories, collec- 
tions of short stories; French grammars and dic- 
tionaries are much needed; also books of travel, 
biography and history. No fiction can be too 
light, and books that are also light in weight and 
easy to hold are especially needed for hospital 

The American Library Association is planning 
a million dollar campaign for the purchase and 
care of books for our soldiers, and any contribu- 
tion to this sum will be gladly received at the li- 

Every community in the United States will be 
expected to share in this gift, and a community 
like ours which knows the possibilities that lie in 
an interesting book to banish temporarily loneli- 
ness, homesickness and pain will wish to give gen- 
erously of books or money or both for the comfort 
of the men, who are giving up everything, many of 
them going regretfully and bravely from just 
such privileges as we have here.

The Department of Hygiene received on Septem- 
ber 3 a request from the Surgeon General in 
Washington to arrange a census of the graduates 
of the Department who would be willing to serve 
under contract or appointment with the United 
States Government in the reconstruction work 
with the injured soldiers at home or abroad. Al- 
ready scores of replies have been received, asking, 
with only two exceptions, to be enrolled for ser- 
vice either at home or abroad. 


Since it was decided to name our new ambulance 
on the Italian front for a Wellesley poet, it was 
most fitting to thus honor the name ot Sophie 
Jewett. Especially was this fact made evident 
when on Monday afternoon, September 24, some 
of those who had known and loved Miss Jewett 
came together in Tower Court to pass on some- 
thing of her rare character to those less fortunate. 
Miss Bates gave some idea of the unusual love 
which Miss Jewett had always had for Italy and 
of the intense horror which she felt for war and 
its atrocities. Miss Jewett particularly loved 
Christmas for its story of Peace. Three members 
of the choir sang Miss Jewett's Nativity Song, 
one of the most beautiful of her Christmas poems. 
A poem in memory of Miss Jewett, written by 
Miss Sherwood, was read by Miss Shackford who 
also pointed out the appropriateness of naming an 
ambulance which might do so much to rid war of 
its horrors for one whose greatest joy was to 
ease pain and alleviate suffering of all kinds. 
To Miss Scudder we are indebted for the picture 
of Sophie Jewett in Italy where it is said she 
travelled, never as a tourist, but as one who had 
come home. Her memory is still reverenced there 
among her many warm Italian friends. Miss 
Jewett responded in ever}' way to the spell of 
Italy and held it in an affection similar to that 
which she felt for her own land. 

In order to give some idea of Miss Jewett's 
relation with Wellesley girls Miss Hibbard and 
Miss Bachelder told of the qualities which made 
her a beloved teacher and friend as well as a 
great scholar and poet. Miss Calkins concluded 
the reminiscences with a tribute to Miss Jewett's 
wide sympathy— wide in the sense that it found 
no more difficulty in encompassing all lands and 
times than it did in suffering deeply with her 
closest friends. 

In an incredibly short time a volume of Sophie 
Jewett's own poems has been compiled and is now 
on sale at $1.00. In this way, Miss Jewett will 
herself play a part in raising the $2,000 necessary 
to buy and maintain the ambulance at the Italian

It is unnecessary to emphasize again the 
unique conditions under which we have entered 
upon the present college year. With the clarity 
of our vision as yet unblurred by the mere usual- 
ness of our surroundings, with the feverish un- 
rest and the cruel reality of the outside world 
fresh in our consciousness as the background 
against which we see Wellesley's undisturbed 
peace and insight into reality, we cannot but be 
impressed by the magnitude of the privilege which 
this new year of serious work offers. That the 
world has realized the significance of college 
training at this critical time is evidenced by its 
insistence that college work go on undisturbed; 
at Wellesley we have this fall an unprecedented 
number of students in all classes returning. In 
view of this concrete expression of the emphasis 
which our government and our parents are plac- 
ing upon the value of mental work, we recognize 
that this year of study is a privilege involving 
also an obligation — the obligation to think and 
act sanely as our greatest present service to the 
cause of democracy and as our fullest prepara- 
tion for what may be before us. This double 
consciousness of privilege and of obligation 
challenges us to a life of the completest achieve- 
ment and, as we enter upon academic duties once 
more, we are determining to meet them squarely, 
developing, not suppressing, a true sense of values. 
We are resolved to accept the challenge to 

To make the Wellesley College News serve in 
every way possible at this time to promote a life 
of achievement is the single aim of the Board of 
Editors. The News is unique among college or- 
ganizations in that its existence is justified only 
as it makes itself the agent of other forces at 
work in the community; only as a form of 
publicity which increases general efficiency can it 
be said to merit the time and money which goes 
into its production. It is therefore with an en- 
hanced sense of responsibility, with an increas- 
ing desire to make this paper of service to the 
Administration, to Student Government, to 
the War Relief Association, to new and old 
students alike, in short to every organization and 
individual of the community, that the News staff 
re-enters upon its duties. The editors realize 
perfectly the impossibility of accomplishing this 
aim alone; only through the co-operation of its 
readers can the News become a real promoter of 
efficiency in all branches of college life and we 
earnestly solicit such co-operation. We are al- 
ways ready so far as space permits to give public- 
ity to any event of interest to the college public; 
we are always glad to receive for the Free Press 
column the opinion, radical or conservative, of 
any individual in the community; we are always 
eager to receive your contribution, however slight, 
for the Parliament of Fools or College Notes. To 
the class of 1921 particularly we open our columns 
since we feel that they who have not as yet com- 
pletely accepted the ways of Wellesley will dis- 
cover much here which may be criticized <i r 
laughed at as well much that is to he praised. 
The News is your paper, useful only as it meets 
your needs. Cannot we all co-operate to make it 
the promoter of achievement which the editors 
desire it to become? 


At the beginning of its 43rd year Wellesley 
College proclaims to the world through the medium 
of the legend set forth on its recently adopted 
coat of arms that a new life is beginning. Never 
before in the history of the College, for it has 
grown up during years of prosperity and peace, 
could the promise of a new beginning have brought 
greater hope. The College of necessity takes on 
the aspect of the outside world. There is of 
course no question of the seriousness of the world 
situation and yet from the prediction of new life 
one cannot but gain a renewed confidence and 
faith. We here in College, despite our sheltered 
existence know that the year before us will be 
one vastly different from any past year. To a 
certain extent at least it depends upon us to de- 
termine wherein that difference shall lie. Despite 
the serious outlook we have but to turn to our 
College banner to gain a sense of optimism. 

Our motto should always be a daily reminder 
to be our best selves but be that as it may the 
inscription on the coat of arms is a distinct 
challenge and a warning to begin anew. If there 
is one thing more than another which the pres- 
ent crisis demands of every person it is to be 
free from the bondage of extravagance. It has 
grown customary when one speaks of extrava- 
gance to infer that the practice of economy is 
applicable only to concrete tangible objects. One 
of the greatest faults found with college girls is 
that they waste time — not in large amounts but 
in scattered minutes. This extravagance is no 
more to be condoned especially at the present 
time than extravagance in any more tangible 
form. The Administration has attempted to facili- 
tate the economy of time by compiling the present 
almost untried schedule. It is a great step 
but it is but the initial one and although we ought 
to find it a trifle more difficult under the new 
system to waste time in the early morning the 
entire result is "up to" us. 

There are countless minutes in every day, always 
before utterly wasted, which, if they were con- 
scientiously economized, might be put to some 
worth while purpose. What a new life Wellesley 
would lead if time was considered as precious as 
the numberless other things in which we arc con- 
stantly being asked to economize.

In every regular issue of the Wellesley College 
News, this space is devoted to t lit- expression of the 
opinion of our readers on any subject of interest 
to the college public. 

So far as space permits, every contribution for 
this column will be utilized, the editors reserving 
the right to suppress, after consultation with the 
writer, any free press article which seems to 
endanger the reputation of the college through 
misuse by the city press, or which seems a repeti- 
tion of an opinion already appearing here. For 
Wellesley's best development, an expression of 
varied opinions, those of the youngest freshmen, of 
the most experienced alumnae, and of members of 
the faculty as well as of students of the upper 
classes, is very much t" be desired. In pas) years 
it has been proved that there exists no medium 
fur the creation of public opinion in college. 

more effective than the News Free Press. Views 
on all subjects from the picket line of the White 
House to the conduct of our own college suffra- 
gists on the streets of Wellesley Village, are in 
place here.

The aim of the Wellesley War Relief Organiza- 
tion for the year 1917-18 is to carry out the work 
of its various committees, and to meet as far as 
possible any urgent demands for War Relief, which 
may arise during the year. The organization is 
working in connection with the Red Cross Chapter 
of the town of Wellesley and with the Peter Bent 
Brigham Hospital of Boston. Such Red Cross work 
as sewing and knitting is done under the super- 
vision of the Wellesley Red Cross Chapter. The 
work of the Surgical Dressings Class is under the 
direction of the Peter Bent Brigham Hospital, 
from which all supplies are obtained and to which 
all finished articles are returned. The mainte- 
nance of an ambulance abroad is to be continued 
during the year. 

The organization is headed by Elizabeth G. 
Frost 1919 who is to be advised by Miss Lowater. 
The work of the Surgical Dressings Class is in 
charge of Kathleene Murphy 1919 advised by Miss 
Louise Waite. The care and adoption of orphans 
and all work in connection with Armenian Relief 
is under the direction of Marion Hamblet 1919 
and her adviser, Miss Tucker. Helen Moore 1919 
as chairman and her adviser, Miss Streibert, see to 
the making and sending of garments and supplies 
to the refugees and children of France. The knit- 
ting material for the United States Marines is 
distributed by Amelia Henderson, 1919, and Miss 
Tufts, her adviser. The Social Welfare work for 
the United States Training Camps is carried on 
by Dorothy Black. lfl?l). A branch of this com-

Read the newspapers seems to be a popular 
phrase just now, not only in college, where it is 
heard in every class, but also in the world at 
large. Though we have the significant fact 
pointed out to us again and again that we are 
living in the greatest history-making period the 
world has ever known, the large majority of us 
seem to have failed to grasp the importance of 
that fact. It is an acknowledged truth that the 
great American public as a whole, is the least in- 
terested in following the course of events in 
Europe of all the fighting nations. And this is 
especially true of the college public. We are so 
taken up with our own comparatively trivial in- 
terests that we constantly neglect the larger in- 
terests of the outside world. We fail to realize 
that every event of any importance whatsoever 
affects our lives, or will affect them at some future 
day. To be sure we do sometimes read the news- 
paper articles that particularly interest us, but 
more often we merely glance at the headlines. 
We seldom give any serious thought or discussion 
to the daily news. It is time that college women, 
who must play such a large part in the recon- 
struction work of the years to come, to cultivate 
a lively interest in outside happenings, an interest 
which should compel them to think for themselves 
on all questions of the day. The amount of news- 
paper reading done here in college is so small as 
to be a positive disgrace to any community, much 
more a college community. And this, despite the 
fact that a knowledge of current events is an 
essential part of our college course. Then, too, 
an important fact to be remembered in regard to 
this reading is that it is almost an absolute 
necessity that we read more than one paper. The 
different views taken by the various papers is 
interesting to note, as well as helpful in the 
promotion of our own opinions. In furtherance 
of this end, a newspaper stand is to be established 
at the elevator table, following the plan originated 
last spring. Beginning on Monday, October 1, all 
the best Boston and New York papers will be on 
sale there, and it is to be hoped that the college 
will avail itself of this opportunity of becoming 
acquainted with current events.

Mr. Horace Bentley English of the Depart- 
ment of Philosophy (1916-17) has left Wellesley 
this year to be with Major Robert M. Verkes of 
the United States Sanitary Corps where he will 
give mentality tests to the army recruits. In 
June, 1917, Mr. English was married to Miss Olive 
Jones of Hastings, Nebraska. 

Miss Edith S. Tufts will be resident at Tower 
Court during the ensuing winter. 

Margaret Christian, '15, has been appointed as 
General Secretary for the Wellesley College Chris- 
tian Association. 

Many former students of the college resident 
in or about Montclair, New Jersey, will be much 
interested in knowing that Miss Louise A. Denni- 
son, so long the head of Freeman House and later 
of Midland House, expects to be this year with 
her nephew, Mr. F. L. Gilman, 29 Erwin Park 
Road, Montclair, New Jersey, where she will be 
very glad to see old friends. 

Mrs. M. B. McComb (Grace Ewing, ex-'lS) 
sailed for England on Tuesday, September 18. 

The Homestead, more commonly known as the 
old farm house near East Lodge, has commenced 
its first year as a college dormitory. Ten sopho- 
mores, who would otherwise be lodged "some- 
where in the vill.", live there and take their meals 
at Stone. Before Wellesley College was even an 
idea, The Homestead was the home of Mr. and 
Mrs. Durant, — in fact it is said that it was there 
that they first started housekeeping. Later it 
became the home of the head gardener, and con- 
tinued as such until this year.

The freshman class was entertained with a live- 
ly and varied collection of stunts at the Barn 
Thursday evening. A military band led by Lieu- 
tenant Eli Hamblin furnished stimulating music, 
and an impromptu movie directed by Elizabeth 
Lupfer brought to light much talent hitherto hid- 
den. Doen Ting Chang, 1920, performed a series 
of juggling and acrobatic marvels which did 
credit to her freshman training in the Hygiene 
department. Members of the Wellesley College 
Choir (and others) gave a graphic and heartrend- 
ing operatic presentation of the assassination of 
Julius Caesar. His untimely death put an end to 
further activities until Pauline Holmes revived 
the stricken audience with dance music. Dancing 
was enjoyed until 9.30. 



Dr. Gilkey of the Hyde Park Congregational 
Church, Chicago, spoke at morning chapel on 
Flower Sunday, September 23. In accordance 
with the Wellesley custom, the text for the first 
Sunday was "God is Love." Dr. Gilkey com- 
menced by saying that in this time of warfare we 
cannot help doubting whether God is Love. How- 
ever, he continued, our conception of God is 
measured by human thought and experience. If, 
in this terrible strife, we can love our friends and 
our enemies with the true love— a sacrificial love 

we can gain a true conception of the love of 

God. His love is a love that gives, not receives. 
It is this divine love that has plunged us into 
war and made us place social ideals, righteous- 
ness, and freedom above compassion and fair 
play. It is through this war, then, that we can 
begin to realize fully that God is Love. 


The early days at Wellesley must have been 
wonderfully happy. Mr. and Mrs. Durant had 
the college under a protecting wing and considered 
each student a protege whose welfare was their 
particular interest. Mr. Durant hung pictures, 
erected statues, bought carpets and scolded indo- 
lent scholars himself, preferring to take the tasks, 
interesting or unpleasant, upon his own shoulders 
than to leave them to be perhaps forgotten. Mrs. 
Durant was buried in the household management 
of College Hall. Her husband left that task en- 
tirely to her, after his first awed presence at the 
students' dinner time. He had not dreamed that 
young ladies could eat so much. Professor Kath- 
erine Lee Bates was an undergraduate in those 
days. At Sunday evening chapel, September 23, 
she talked to the college of this present day about 
the atmosphere in which Wellesley was founded, 
until the spirit of the past seemed to sanction our 
youth and bring the college ideals more vividly 
before us. 

Wellesley was founded after the death of Mr. 
and Mrs. Durant's two children. The college was 
their expression of parenthood. The estate which 
was to have been the home of future Durants be- 
came instead the temporary home of thousands of 
girls. The love and the care which the Durant 
children would have received has been lavished 
upon each college generation, and those ideals of 
truth, beauty and courage by which the children 
were to have known their parents have become 
the background upon which Wellesley girls have 
loved their college. 


The Senior class of 1918 made its initial ap- 
pearance in cap and gown at the chapel service 
Saturday morning, September 22. 

President Pendleton welcomed the returning 
classes and 1921 to a year of earnest work. This 
year, in view of the present world situation, is 
opening under conditions unprecedented in the 
history of the college, offering opportunities of 
productive work for the student. It is especially 
appropriate that this year for the first time 
there should be hanging in the chapel the ban- 
ner of the State of Massachusetts, and the Welles- 
ley College banner, hearing the coat of .inns 
adopted by the trustees last June. The coat of 
arms consists of an open book, with Dante's 
words inscribed on the page: "Hie incipit vita 

In order to begin this new life of college with 
the spirit most needed today, the collection of tin- 
first Sunday morning service, as President Pen- 
dleton announced, is to go toward the Sophie 
Jewett Ambulance, which is In he sent to the 
Italian front. Wellesley was tin- lirst college I" 
send an ambulance in Europe three years ago, 

that ambulance serving until this spring, when 
the ambulance sent by the alumnae as a memorial 
to Frances Warren Pershing, '03, replaced it. 
As Sophie Jewett is one of the women of whom 
Wellesley is most proud, it would be an honor 
to send an ambulance in her name. 


We who have • been associated in college work 
and life with Katrine Wheelock desire to place 
on record and to express to her friends the affec- 
tion and esteem in which we have held her. 

Miss Wheelock brought to her special and pro- 
fessional study, begun in mature years, not the 
ordinary preparation of a college course, but 
instead of this a somewhat wide culture individual- 
ly acquired, a singular devotion to the truth, and 
a habit of independent judgment. The influences 
which had shaped her mind and character came 
from her own thought and reading and from some 
foreign travel, but especially from a more than 
usually intimate contact with two strong personali- 
ties, — one Miss Porter of Farming-ton, a rare 
teacher and gentlewoman; the other, her own father, 
Joseph Wheelock of St. Paul, who was himself a 
thinker and leader of men. Her scholarly work 
in Theological Seminaries in Hartford and New 
York, and in her teaching here seems to her col- 
leagues no less than heroic when they think of the 
physical frailty always so simply and uncom- 
plainingly accepted as one of the natural limita- 
tions of life. 

For the last twelve years she has lived among 
ns. In these years she has set before her students 
in her classroom a lofty standard of intellectual 
honesty and of earnest and thorough work; she 
has increased their spirit of reverence and loyalty; 
she has enlarged and deepened their conception 
of the Bible student's task. 

In her life of the last ten years in a large 
freshman house she has had an opportunity to 
leave upon generations of younger students the 
impress of her personality, with its innate delicacy 
of thought and feeling, its refinement of manner, 
and its spiritual beauty. 

Her fellow workers, both students and faculty, 
will not forget the spirit of willing co-operation, 
the readiness to assume more than her share of 
every burden, the faithfulness in detail and clear- 
ness of judgment, the modesty combined with 
firmness, the spirit of service without regard for 
recognition which made all association in work 
with her an inspiration and a delight. 

Xo one could come in contact with this life 
without recognizing the sincerity of its faith. The 
religion which she taught was the deep source of 
her own serenity and unselfishness; the work to 
which she devoted her life kept her face to face 
with spiritual realities, and it is easy for us to 
feel that for her the unexpected awakening to a 
new task unhampered by physical limitations will 
lie as natural as was the opening of her hooks 
each day for a new day's work.

Continuing the plan from last year, the ad- 
vertising committee will procure posters for all 
college events. Requests for posters must be 
made on slips which can be found in an envelope 
on the Student Government board, and be placed 
in a second envelope not less than one week be- 
fore the poster is to appear. Any girl who has 
not signed up to make posters, and who is will- 
ing to do so, please send word to Ruth Hornsey, 
C. Shafer. The more workers we have, the less 
each girl will have to do. If you can do no more 
than print, send your name in.

Since the change in schedule, the class of 1918 
seems to have adopted the balcony of the Chapel 
as a new Senior transept. Well, 1918's habit of 
prompt appearance at Chapel has been so firmly 
established through long years of college experi- 
ence, that no one could expect it to be changed 
in a single day or week. 


Henry Miller will present Ruth Chatterton in 
A. E. Thomas' newest comedy "Come Out of the 
Kitchen" at the Hollis Street Theatre, Boston, 
for a limited engagement beginning Monday, Octo- 
ber I. 

"Come Out of the Kitchen," with its present 
cast and production was presented first at 'the 
Columbia Theatre, San Francisco, a little over a 
year since. It was received in that city with such 
sensational enthusiasm that the capacity of the 
Columbia Theatre was taxed at every performance 
for five consecutive weeks. This is a record which 
has never been equaled before by any form of 
dramatic presentation in that city. 

Following this record breaking engagement in 
San Francisco, Mr. Miller took Miss Chatterton 
and the original company intact direct to New 
York City where they were seen for thirty-two 
triumphant weeks at the Cohan Theatre. "Come 
Out of the Kitchen" proved one of the most pro- 
nounced successes of the New York season. 

The play tells a fantastic story of a Southern 
family reduced in circumstances. They lease their 
ancestral estates to a Northern man, and through 
their inability to provide him with the servants 
he expects, members of the patrician family, un- 
suspected by him, assume the humble duties and 
wait upon their tenants. There grows out of this 
situation a pretty romance, which is told with 
sympathy and humor.

Julia Reid, Wellesley, '93 (Mrs. Charles W. 
WiUard) died on May 29th. She was at Pitts- 
burg on her way East, to make some visits and 
to join the group of classmates who were to meet 
at Commencement and make plans for their 25th 
Reunion next June. 

To those who knew her only in her college days 
her name recalls the finest type of college girl, 
loving fun and beauty and all that is fineness; but 
to most of us her quick and exquisite sympathy 
with every weariness or distress whether of soul 
or of body crowned all and symbolized her nature. 
To those who have known her of late she showed 
in fullest development the qualities of her girl- 
hood. Her unchanging loyalty and affection, her 
unflagging care for others, her steady, unques- 
tioning devotion to high ideals, her courage and 
serenity under the burden of ill health, her utter 
selflessness, united with sound judgment and an 
unerring taste in which enthusiasm and humor 
were met in wholesome balance, made of her the 
ideal companion, at once comforting and stimulat- 
ing, and of her home a supremely happy and 
beautiful haven never to be forgot.

For members of the College in those changeful 
years '86-'95 and especially for members of the 
College Hall household, the announcement in the 
News of the death of Mrs. Fredonia S. Case 
renews precious memories. One recalls again the 
heartening presence, the strong but kind and 
comely face, the shapely head, the glint of golden- 
white hair. 

Mrs. Case lived among us as a faithful and 
efficient officer of the College, a true mother spirit, 
and a distinct intellectual and moral force. The 
calls of her office were incessant, but she always 
had time for sympathy and for counsel, for cur- 
rent events in the round world, and for books 
tested by time. 

After she left Wellesley, Mrs. Case lost noth- 
ing of her interest in the place and its people. 
Her letters often made us feel as if we wire tin- 
absent and mindful and she in the glowing con- 
tinuity of things. To advanced years, she held 
fast for herself the principle of ministering rather 
than of being ministered unto. At an*age when 
most would have thought themselves permanently 
excused from service in the sick-room, Mrs. Case, 
hearing of the illness of an already much in- 
debted friend in a lonely farm house, packed a bag 
of needments, engaged n carriage, and presented

as she came along the winding Vermont ways

After she left the College, Mrs. Case lived in

earthly sojourn. She had been losing strength 
slowly but unmistakably, and both her son, Mr. 
William W. Case, summoned from his home in
